Can You Teal the Love

Donation Blocks for Can You Teal the Love

May 2022

When Kate over at Tall Tales from Chiconia announced that she is making an Ovarian Cancer charity quilt this year – after a two year pandemic hiatus – I knew right away that I wanted to contribute to this quilt project. The last one I had participated in was Go Teal it on the Mountain, back in 2018. The theme this year is love, with hearts being the feature element in the blocks’ design. To keep things interesting, she expanded the colorway from teal (predominant) and ivory, to include pink (in small amounts) this year.

I knew right away that I wanted to represent these colors in a dove, using hearts for the wings. While the pink is not intended to represent breast cancer for this quilt, the teal and pink together is meaningful to me: my sister passed away late last year from breast cancer, and her sister-in-law passed away in early 2020 from ovarian cancer. How befitting that I could combine these two colors in a dove, a symbol of love.

The final quilt (shown below) was assembled by Kate and donated for The Trudy Crowley Foundation fund-raiser in September 2022, to help support the work of the newly-opened Trudy Crowley Center. The center provides a safe space, conference room, self-care and advice haven for those with ovarian cancer and their families.

  1. Thank you so much for participating once again, and with such lovely blocks! Everyone loves your ‘heartfelt dove’, and my personal favourite is the four leaf clover of hearts.

    • The four leaf clover of hearts was the last one I made. While in the process of cleaning up my workspace, there were still many small pieces of teal fabric left, that I couldn’t resist trying this design that’s ideal for using up little pieces. Can’t wait to see how it all comes together!
